Just north of Dayton on Interstate 75, Troy, Ohio is a suburb and the seat of Miami County. The Great Miami River runs through the eastern half of the city. Originally home to the Native American tribes Miami and Shawnee, the area which would become Troy was established at the beginning of the 19th century. Early residents named the town after the city of Troy, famous in the epics of the ancient Greek poet Homer. Troy began to seriously prosper after the building of the Miami and Erie Canal which connected the Ohio River north to Lake Erie. Built between 1825 and 1845 the 274-mile canal connected the city of Cincinnati on the Ohio with Toledo on the lake. It passed through both Dayton and Troy on its way through the state. Several turnpikes in the area also helped Troy achieve growth. In the 1800’s turnpikes were toll roads which dotted the landscape throughout the eastern United States. Ohio didn’t see its first turnpike until 1808 but by 1845 there were more than 200 turnpikes connecting travelers throughout the state. While the builders of the turnpikes saw little in direct profits they did see economic growth because the turnpikes facilitated movement and trade, local merchants, farmers and land owners. Troy was a beneficiary of this boom in transportation infrastructure, and between 1840 and 1845 the town’s population almost doubled. By 1846 there were several churches, two newspapers, warehouses, sawmills, a branch of Ohio’s state bank and a Masonic Hall. Throughout the 19th century and into the early 20th century, Troy remained a hub for the shipping of agricultural products to markets in the east. Today, Troy is the largest city in Miami County and many of its residents commute to the nearby cities of Dayton and Springfield.
A Troy tutor will most certainly keep you ahead of the academic curve so you can take time away from the books to enjoy the many things to do in Troy and the surrounding area. Built in the first decade of the 1800’s, the Overfield Tavern has played an integral role in the history of Troy. First, simply a meeting place where travelers could gather, the tavern also housed the Miami County Court and the Masonic Lodge. In recent years, the tavern has been converted to a museum and the building has been scrupulously restored to its original appearance. The museum features a rare collection of early 19th century furniture and household items. The museum also includes an art gallery, classroom and library.
For nature enthusiasts, the Bruckner Nature Center in Troy is surrounded by over 150 acres of woodlands with ample opportunities for visitors to view a variety of native wildlife. The center includes over six miles of peaceful trails which wind their way through the area and take hikers to the shores of Stillwater River. The center is an important conservation facility, nurturing, healing and releasing injured wildlife. The property also includes a restored log cabin built in 1804. The center’s naturalists provide guided tours and presentations for groups.
It’s just a short drive south from Troy to Dayton where culture lovers will want to visit the Dayton Art Institute, home of more than 20,000 objects from 5,000 years of human history. Overlooking downtown Dayton, the institute is housed in an Italian Renaissance style building which has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum is highlighted by masterpieces from iconic artists such as Rubens, O’Keefe, Warhol and Hopper. It is also home to the magnificent glass sculpture of Dale Chihuly.
